CUBO members have a very significant staff cohort in each institution – 800 here in Leeds in my team – so issues pertaining to H&S are critical for us all. Mental health issues and sickness represent significant concerns and it is vital that CUBO members are appraised on sector-wide initiatives and useful connections.
